خطب عمر بن عبد العزيز

آخر خطبة خطبها فقال فيها

‘Umar ibn ‘Abd al-`Aziz (rahimahullaah) said in his last khutbah:

[يا أيها الناس]

O people,

إنكم لم تخلقوا عبثاً

ولم تتركوا سدىً

Indeed you have not been created for mere play
Nor will you be left in vain

وإن لكم معاداً

ينزل الله فيه للفصل بين عباده

And for you is an appointed time
Wherein Allaah will descend to judge between his servants

فقد خاب وخسر من خرج من رحمة الله

التي وسعت كل شيء

Truly the failure is he who has left the Mercy of Allaah
which has encompassed all things

و حرم جنة عرضها السماوات والأرض


And who has been forbidden from Paradise,
its width as wide as the heavens and the earth

ألا ترون أنكم في أسلاب هالكين

Don’t you see that you are indeed in a destroyed plunder

وسيرثها بعدكم الباقون

And those after you shall inherit it

كذلك حتى ترد إلى خير الوارثين

Like that it will be, until it is returned to the Best of Inheritors (Allaah)

و في كل يوم تشيعون غادياً ورائحاً إلى الله


And everyday you are going back and forth escorting (someone) to Allaah

قد قضى نحبه

و أنقضى أجله

His term has been settled
And his life is over

أتودعونه و تدعونه في صدع من الأرض

غير موسّد ولا ممهّد


Will you then bid him farewell and call him from the rough and unleveled cracks of the earth?

قد خلع الأسباب

و فارق الأحباب

و سكن التراب

و واجه الحساب


He has left all provisions
And left his beloved ones
He has settled to live among dust
And is due to face the reckoning

غني عما خلف

فقير إلى ما أسلف


He is free from what he has left behind
And in dire need of what he has put forth

فاتقوا الله عباد الله

قبل نزول الموت و انقضاء مواقيته


So fear Allaah O servants of Allaah
Before the descent of death and the coming of his time

و إني لأقول لكم هذه المقالة

وما أعلم عند أحد من الذنوب مما أعلم عندي


Indeed, I say this to you
But none knows as much as I do of the sins (I have) earned

ولكني

استغفر الله و أتوب إليه


But I seek the forgiveness of Allaah and repent to Him

ثم رفع طرف ردائه و بكى حتى شهق

ثم نزل فما عاد إلى المنبر حتى مات

رحمة الله عليه


He then lifted the ends of his cloak and wept…
Then he got down and did not return to the minbar until he passed away
May the Mercy of Allaah be upon him.

Aameen
